Oral practice

Oral practice.


Although this post is really written about a Spanish class, this activity can be used in bilingual classes as well.  I personally used a similar activity to help my kids practice their oral English or their written Spanish.  When you add in the writing component, you can focus on spelling, punctuation, writing complete sentences, and other skills.  I found that my students really liked it when I used “silly” pictures.  We would give “classroom money” for really original or creative statements.  The students would decide who deserved these rewards.  Soon the level of the sentences were getting quite complex and interesting.  Later, I showed the kids that putting these sentences together we could begin to write a story.
